I love making sitr-fries, but feel like a wok would be too limited in its use. Is there a pan out there that I can use for stir-fries and also for other types of cooking?

Versatility That'll Stir You

If you're looking for a versatile addition to your cookware collection, try a Chef's pan. It features low, sloped, wok-like sides that enable liquids to evaporate quickly and makes it easy to stir and toss foods. The narrow flat bottom makes the pan ideal for stir frying, too. That's not all, though. A high-domed lid circulates heat evenly to braise slow-cooked dishes like stew, or cook risotto, rice and sauces.
